Working full time for the first time in 5 years takes some getting used
to. It's not the work or the time I spend working it's the extra time I
have to build into my day for the commute! Sadly I work a 20-minute
drive from my home. However, on public transportation that same commute
is 50 minutes. Then of course I have to get up early enough to not be
rushed -- in my younger days I'd be out the door in one hour flat. I
also didn't eat breakfast, I didn't wear as much make up (eyeliner and
lipstick only), and I think I moved faster! :-)
So I put this outfit together last night under a time crunch because I have my final LLM course on Thursday nights. I remembered wearing these pieces together before. I did not however load up the pearls that time. Can I just say I loved this outfit? It's perfectly me, and I felt very much all of myself wearing it. I got the passersby double-take in this outfit, and people on the street
seemed to like it. I forgot to include my yellow tote in the pictures which picks up the yellow in the belt, but I think you all get the idea.
Apologies in advance as I don't look as fresh as I did this morning. This was taken after work, and after fighting traffic to grab my box of goodies (shoes and a pair of boots) from UPS. Can I just make a PSA and say that some of the highest quality well-made shoes I own are Lands End. They are quite comfortable (not crocs comfy, comfy for heels kind of comfy). They have cushioned leather insoles and leather soles. Lands End happened to be having a sale earlier this week 40% off all shoes so I picked up this pair in sweet potato and patent gray and these are the boots. I have totally digressed :-) but as I said in the beginning this has been a long week.
OK I'm rambling so I'll wrap it up now. Happy Friday!
